I can confidently say this is the first ship-in-a-bottle that’s ever been featured on CHUD, but it was just too cool to pass up. There’s something special about taking a movie all about the threat of a unnaturally large shark (that requires a bigger boat) being scaled down to this size.

Constructed by Gabrielle Rogers at S&G Ships In Bottles, this special film fan commission has a full process breakdown on their blog, where you can see painstaking detail she put in to recreating the Orca, its crew, and its giant, man-eating sea companion. Even seeing how it’s done I remain baffled by the process of getting those materials into that space to look like that.

I’ve grabbed a few cool shots, but make sure you check out the entire process of bringing this scene to very miniature life.
